Visitors still come to the Yorkshire Dales in search of the locations used in the original TV series and film adaptation of the popular books. The BBC series ran from 1978 to 1990, showcasing the Yorkshire Dales to a huge audience.
It's hoped that a new audience will soon discover the delights of the James Herriot books, thanks to a new adaptation of All Creatures Great and Small, commissioned by Channel 5. The series is currently being filmed by production company, Playground (who created Wolf Hall and Howards End), and will also be shown on PBS in the United States. The commission is for an initial series of six episodes as well as a Christmas special.
The original series was filmed mainly in locations in Swaledale and Wensleydale but it looks like there will be some different locations for the new series. Film crews have been spotted filming in and around Grassington, Malham and Kettlewell.
